Watch This Mustang Shelby GT350 Almost Destroy A Cars & Coffee Crowd

Fail

Is anyone really shocked this sort of thing happened again?

We've driven the Mustang GT, and while it’s easy to get the back out it's also just as easy to not crash it in the process. It’s really not rocket science: You put your foot down and the car goes forwards. You turn the front wheels and the car goes in the direction you point it. When these things don’t work as intended, you simply lift off the power and readjust the steering. What you don’t do is hold it flat and hope for the best, especially if there are crowds of people watching with a smartphone in hand ready to upload your fail to the world.

This time around a crowd-loving Mustang driver decided to put on a little show at Cars & Coffee Houston. It wasn’t a run of the mill Mustang either; it was one sporting a Shelby 350 conversion. Surely you master RWD before getting a big and powerful car, right?

This means the person behind the wheel was impersonating someone who could actually drive a beast packing 526 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. That's quite a scary number in the wrong hands. The Mustang once again lived up to its weird reputation for crowd hunting and the crash, although it looked minor, proceeded to wreck the suspension as well as a few other related bits. Luckily no one was seriously hurt, although we assume some of the crowd members who rushed to escape the Mustang's war path got a few bumps and bruises. The owner's ego is likely shattered as well. To be fair the crowd should have never been that close to the street anyway. Don't they know that a Mustang exiting Cars & Coffee means "run the hell away"?
